Will Young slams first single

2011-12-24 22:38

Los Angeles - Will Young "hates" his first ever single.

The 32-year-old star released the double A-side Anything Is Possible and Evergreen when he won TV talent show Pop Idol in 2002 but hasn't ever performed the first track lives because he dislikes it so much.

He said: "I've never done Anything is Possible live. I hate it. I absolutely hate it."

The Come On singer is known for his quirky music videos but admits he "can't bear" to watch back his first ones because they were so "shocking", despite having huge amounts of money spent on them.

He said: "I can't bear Evergreen or Anything is Possible, they're absolutely shocking. And you wouldn't believe the amount of money that was spent on those videos.

"Fucking hell! Dreadful videos. At one moment it looks like I'm in love with a tree! Dreadful. Really odd. Dreadful. No, no, no. No. But since then the track record has been pretty good actually - apart from one - but the first one was really awful."

While he never performs Anything is Possible, Will still plays Evergreen live but enjoys experimenting with different arrangements of the track as he thinks it is "important" to continue to sing the song.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I just thought, let's do something a bit more interesting. Originally I wanted to do a really dancey Evergreen, which still could work one day.

"But Dave my MD [Musical Director] came with these chords, and it's nice to... it's a song that's so different to what I'm doing now but it's important and it's a moment and it's good to do, so we change it up and it works."

    What does he mean, "his first single". Everything he has done is talentless rubbish.

      Hmmm lets think... He wrote all the songs on the new album except for one. He has a very good voice and musicality. He is famous and has sold millions of records. On the other hand we have you - bitchy comments and most likely less musical talent than a tree - else we will know who you are. So..... Will Young 1 - Fred 0.

      @Fred: Can't argue with a Bieber fan, eh?

    I think he needs to pull out the butt plug and take a chill pill. Every artist has to start somewhere.
